Nursery/Landscape Client Testimonials

“We chose to partner with The Flanders Group because in the long run we have much better service and they provided us with a very competitive program. Their attention to accuracy means no hidden surprises or neglectful costly mistakes. They helped us understand what our insurance program was providing and what it wasn’t in a way that has never been done for us before with their Coverage Gap Analysis. Their HR expert reviewed our employee handbook and provided us with valuable improvement opportunities and samples of the changes suggested to make it easy for us.”

Laurie Broccolo, Broccolo Tree & Lawn Care Inc. – Rochester, NY

“The Flanders Group really knows the ins and outs of Workers’ Compensation in New York.  They were able to get our workforce classified properly at last, reducing out annual premiums by 40% and even getting us a sizeable refund for our most recent year of overpayment and they are delightful to work with.”

RV/Auto Dealers Client Testimonials

“A typical day for business owners/managers is the endless phone calls “that will save you money”. I receive so many of these in a day, I sometimes hesitate to pick up the phone. One call though in recent history I took the time to listen as they caught my attention with the mention of reducing cost for workers’ comp insurance. This call was just after meeting with my carrier for comp insurance. Christina from the Flanders Group had some intriguing information. I was not at all familiar with Safety Groups. As I had just renewed my policy and a busy time of year I passed on the opportunity. Christina was persistent with her follow up but not over bearing. After some thought and questioning other business owners about Safety Groups I discovered them to be very cost effective. I talked to my existing carrier about reducing the cost and was told it was state mandated. I could tell he was on the defensive and was not willing to negotiate. About a year or so later I made the move to the Safety Group with the Flanders Group. My only regret is the money I lost waiting. The switch was seamless, this group has a wealth of knowledgeable staff, they truly are experts in this field. I highly recommend the use of Safety Groups through the Flanders Group. You will have great coverage, save some cash and work with efficient experienced people.”

Dean E. Davis, Davis Trailer World, LLC – York, NY 585-538-6640

“The Flanders Group did a great job on working with NYSIF to remove an uninsured subcontractor from my last audit and properly allocated my payroll on the same audit, saving us $4,000. Thanks again for your patience and hard work throughout the process.”
